Product Description

When Becca’s (Emily Osment) losing soccer team needs a new coach, Wendy (Missi Pyle) decides to masquerade as the famous Italian soccer star ‘Lorenzo Vincenzo’ and take the job. Can she now lead Becca’s team to the regional finals before her increasingly crazy double life comes totally unglued? Kids and parents alike will love this heartwarming family comedy about mothers, daughters and the unexpected goals that bring them together.

Stills from Soccer Mom (click for larger image)

Teenage girls often struggle with self-confidence and the members of the losing Galaxy girl's soccer team are finding their own sense of inadequacy difficult to overcome. When their lackluster coach gets transferred to Italy, the team's hopes soar at the promise of soccer legend Lorenzo Vincenzo (What I Like About You's Dan Cortese) filling in as temporary coach. The team's excitement threatens to turn to bitter disappointment when the soccer great refuses to coach the team upon landing in California. Soccer mom Wendy (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's Missi Pyle), concerned that her daughter Becca (Hannah Montana's Emily Osment)is at a crossroads in dealing with the death of her father, decides to take things into her own hands in order to avoid disappointing her daughter and the rest of the team. With the help of a couple of friends, Wendy disguises herself as Lorenzo Vincenzo and, before she knows it, she's coaching her daughter's soccer team incognito. Wendy's double life becomes increasingly complicated and comedy reigns as she tries to keep her dual identity a secret while inspiring the team to greatness. In the end, everyone involved learns an important lesson about the power of self-confidence and the special bond between mothers and daughters. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

I rented this movie from RedBox and I couldn't stop lauging as the mom tries to play a popular italian soccer star just to convince the girls soccer team that he is actually coming to coach. She and the soccer star actually got into an altercation at the airport and he blatantly refused to coach the soccer team, but there are some real surprising twists as the movie progreses. I was laughing for more than a full minute on the part where the real "Lorenzo" pours a pitcher of water on himself because two other people poured water on him because they thought he couldn't "make up his mind" on what to order. The truth of the matter was the mom (Missi Pyle) was impersonating him and they were in the same room!

You just need to watch the movie to find out if the mom's (Missi Pyle's) act of playing Lorenzo the Italian soccer star is exposed. Emily Osmont did an excellent job as playing Missi Pyle's daughter and she is very good at playing soccer. I wish I could give this movie 6 stars because of how closely it resembled Mrs. Doubtfire and She's the Man (both excellent movies where people try to impersonate others).

I wasn't sure why some people gave it negative reviews based on the sexual dialagoue, but this is a teen movie. What did you expect? But anyway this movie is actually worth buying and keeping as a collector's edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Family Movie October 14, 2008
By S. Levy
What a special movie, for the entire family. Soccer Mom has it all: strong family values, humor and suspense, and general warmth that touches the entire family. Not just girl power, but family power too. And some great acting. We can't stop talking about it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Movie Fun for the Entire Family December 30, 2008
I bought this movie based on a recommendation from a friend. My wife and I thought it was well done and funny. My young daughters especially enjoyed watching Emily Osment and the soccer scenes. The story is not the most original, but it has a warm message driving it. Missi Pyle does a great job as Wendy and as Lorenzo. We really felt she cared about her daughter's happiness. It was fun to watch, and we laughed a lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars soccer film April 16, 2010
I'm not sure what to think about Soccer Mom to be totally honest. I laughed enough times that I found myself enjoying it, but that doesn't change the fact the storyline definitely has a low budget feel to it.

The film definitely contains humor, though I must admit I didn't really catch any of the sexual references that many others apparently have. If that's the case, yeah, you probably shouldn't let your teens watch this movie.

The goofy Italian guy was hilarious most of the time, as was the majority of the little things such as the soccer moms kids letting the family dog eat peanut butter and slobber all over the place, haha.

There *is* a positive message about not giving up when it comes to playing the game of soccer poorly. Gotta give the film a little bit of credit there. Not the greatest film in the world, but decent enough for a rental.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tootsie meets Beckham June 17, 2010
Sometimes corny, generally predictable, Soccer Mom is nonetheless a surprisingly entertaining. In a plot twist reminiscent of Tootsie, a suburban soccer mom dresses up as an Italian soccer star to impress her daughter's team. This film isn't flashy and the acting won't leave you floored, but it does the job.

I suspect this will be a good movie for older kids/younger teens. I found the complaints about sexual innuendos to be nonsense. The whole point of the plot twist is that the female does not realize she's kissing the mom, but thinks she's kissing a soccer star. It's not a lesbian kiss.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great movie! October 12, 2008
We have watched this movie three times now. My nieces, nephews, family and friends laugh throughout the movie. The movie is fun, enjoyable and the soundtrack is great also. I personally enjoy the closing song of the movie. This is a must see movie!!! enjoy.

For the record, it isn't Missi Pyle's character who says that to her daughter. She and Emily Osment share a different sort of dysfunction.

Parents will do the screwiest things for their kids. SOCCER MOM demonstrates this, with Missi Pyle playing a harried mom who masquerades as famous Italian soccer star, Lorenzo Vincenzo, who comes to coach her 14-year-old daughter's hapless soccer team. SOCCER MOM hits its high points whenever the disguise is on and I grinned at all the wacky that went down. Missi Pyle, under all the prosthetic, looks passable as a dude, although she's not as convincing with the posture and the man voice. Still, Missi is so likable that it's easy to overlook those nitpicks. There's just a bit of Lucille Ball in Missi Pyle.

It's nice to see Emily Osment temporarily shedding HANNAH MONTANA to do her own thing, to step into the spotlight for once. Emily's angry teen role doesn't lend much room for her comedic talents so she switches it up and demonstrates a nice dramatic presence. It also adds a measure of believability that Osment actually has eight or nine years of soccer-playing experience. Underneath all the silly stuff, the core beat concerns the strained relationship between a mom and a daughter grieving over the loss of her father, and the mom's desperate attempt to reconnect. It all adds up to a warm-hearted family flick with bits of good old-fashioned silly cross-dressing thrown in. The soccer sequences won't light up any soccer fan, but that's not the point, anyway. The screwball's the thing, and how ridiculous it really gets when the real (and blustery) Lorenzo Vincenzo shows up at the regional finals. But we all knew that wasn't not gonna happen.

The DVD's bonus stuff: "Heart of Goal" features interviews with cast members Missy Pyle, Emily Osment, and Dan Cortese (00:07:48 minutes); "From Mom To Man" reveals the arduous process which transforms Missy Pyle into Lorenzo Vincenzo (00:06:27); and the movie trailer.
